The officer was escorting the dog off a north Moorhead property when he was bitten in the upper thigh. The officer received treatment for his injury at Sanford Health while the dog was transported to FM Animal Hospital to be held and monitored for any signs of rabies.

The dog involved in the incident is described as a tan-colored male Pitbull with scars on his face and head. The dog is not registered, nor does it have owner tags. Moorhead Police are seeking the owner of the dog to confirm whether the dog has current vaccinations against rabies.
